Amsterdam North, a hotbed for creativity

Amsterdam North (Noord) might be tranquil, green and beautiful – yet it’s fast becoming a business force to be reckoned with. North is now home to many world-renowned creative and new-media companies; HEMA, MTV Europe and Red Bull have set up their headquarters in the area. North is undoubtedly a worthwhile investment: it’s liveable, office rents are attractive and it’s just a short ferry ride away from Amsterdam Central – and the completion of the NZ metro line is due to improve North’s already-stellar connectivity.
